Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, the tribe has strug­gled for mil­len­nia against the forces of pro­hi­bi­tion and intol­er­ance. The bat­tle has ebbed and flowed. Out­num­bered and lack­ing in aggres­sive ten­den­cies, the Moon­al­ice tribe learned early on to avoid direct con­fronta­tion. It found hide­outs in times of trou­ble. One of these was the town of Willits, Cal­i­for­nia. There seems to be a pow­er­ful shield around Willits which repels most bad guys. We’re not sure how it works, but last time the band was there, we felt its effects. Hard­wood and Chubby Wom­bat Moon­al­ice got bur­ri­tos at a restau­rant in town, look­ing for­ward to a tasty hot sauce plat­form. About an hour later, the whole world started danc­ing and it didn’t stop until long after the show ended. Some hot sauce!!! Need­less to say, we’re look­ing for more.

Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, August 10 is National S’mores Day. Eat ‘em if you’ve got ‘em. If you haven’t, fall back on tra­di­tional herbal remedies.

Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, real­ity is only inter­est­ing in mod­er­ate doses. We bring this up because today is the 60th anniver­sary of Can­did Cam­era, the orig­i­nal real­ity TV show. Did you know that the show began on radio as Can­did Micro­phone? Didn’t think so. In the mid 60s, there were brief exper­i­ments with other real­ity TV for­mats, includ­ing Can­did Acid Test, Can­did Human Be In, Can­did Inner City Riots and Can­did Viet­nam War, but none of them had any stay­ing power. It turns out that peo­ple only want phony real­ity on TV. Which brings us to the Moon­al­ice phi­los­o­phy of Con­fu­sion­ism. Real­ity is all well and good, but you will be hap­pier if you make your own.
